In Stage 3 your school works to cut down its use of single-use plastics, particularly the BIG 4 items (bottles, disposable cups + lids, straws and bags), and encourages the use of reusables among staff and pupils.
Step 1: Take action against the single-use BIG 4
- Identify where a reusable alternative to alternative to ONE of the BIG 4 might be ‘swapped in’
- Try and provide access to tap water, water fountains and washing facilities (when safe)
- Encourage the use of reusables among pupils and staff
- Where single-use plastics can’t be avoided, provide information and recycling facilities
Steps 2, 3 and 4
- Repeat Step 1 three times, each time taking action against a different BIG 4 item
NB. where single-use plastics can’t be avoided, provide information and recycling facilities
Step 5: Let Kids Against Plastic know
